Talking About Music ft Matt Jaffe

Hello my marvelous readers, welcome to my blog. I hope you’re all having an amazing week so far. Today I’m going to be sharing with you a little interview I did with the talented Matt Jaffe. He’s a singer, guitarist and songwriter from North America. His music has made an impact all around the world. I’ve talked to him several times, he’s a really nice guy and I personally enjoy listening to his music. For me, music is one of the best things that humans have ever created. Personally I do everything while I’m listening to music, it helps me to concentrate and be on a happy mood. I believe that music has the power to change the way people see life. It can connect people from all around the world and create new friendships. Let’s see what Matt thinks about this.

Mini Interview

I asked 6 simple questions to Matt related to the music world and how he has been able to pursue his dream.

1.- How was your moment of inspiration when you decided to start being a singer?

There wasn’t a single moment when I decided to start singing.  I just grew up idolizing Mick Jagger and Bono and David Byrne, and knew I had to do what they do.

2.- Do you have any role model who helps you keep working hard in order to achieve your goals?

I keep working because writing new songs is the most exciting feeling in the world.  There are lots of songwriters whose prolific work ethic has inspired me (Tom Petty, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan), but it’s my own experience of discovery that drives me.

3.- What do you think about the musical environment now a days? Is it easier to become famous or not at all?

It seems like it’s easier to become famous for less substantial contributions to a greater creative community or society at large, but because social media platforms have made fame more convenient, there are also more people trying.  I’m not sure how those opposite vectors cancel each other out. Could be easier, could be tougher.

4.- How have you managed to grow your audience?

I try to be consistent in putting out content.  I haven’t always been successfully consistent, but it seems if a Facebook page is inactive for about 1.5 days, people assume it’s no longer operational.  Growing a fanbase is a matter of resilience and saturation.

5.- What do you think your fans enjoy the most about your music?

I hope they like the melodies the best.

6.- Do you have any advice for those little artist who are trying to start an artistic career?

Write a lot of songs.

Final Thoughts About This

I know some of you are trying to achieve an artistic career, I know sometimes that dream is not supported by your relatives. But you need to keep fighting if it’s something you really want and would like to do, so why not trying till you achieve it. You need to start creating your own path in life, and if music is what moves you, work hard, prove that you’ll be successful, prove that you’re willing to do whatever it takes (always legal and good things) to achieve it. Start creating new songs, new melodies, new connections. It won’t be easy but it will be worthy. Always try your best to achieve your goals.

I really want to thank Matt for his time and his kindness, I hope you all enjoy this post. If you want more post like this let me know on the comments below or on my social media handles.
